Picked up a big sister to the 02


Recommended Posts

Needed a commuter, this was a good deal with a full maintenance record and mucho $$$ spent recently...


Whatever $$$$ I lost on buying the 2002 in a rotten state, Karma sent back my way with this car. It's a 2000 528i, 90K miles, I got it for $6000 ! I only invested $500-600 in clear headlight covers, oil, floor mats and various clips, elbow grease, a Battery and did I mention tons of elbow grease ? It looks decent now and runs well ! Kinda funny, I was never into modern(ish) bimmers, but the 02 changed my mind - you can do a lot of DIY on this too !

By the title, I was thinking you picked up a E3 Bavaria. That's not a big sister, the 02 should be the great great grandmother to the E39. BTW, E39 are not great commuter cars, for a cheap commuter car, go with an E30 or E36, E30 eta cars make great commuter cars, cheap on gas and fun to drive. E39 are great touring cars IMHO.

Not true E39's are great commuter cars. My 540 has been reliable knock on wood. Not so great on gas but not bad either for a v8. Very smoth sporty and fun ride. The 528 is even a better commuter has an actual steering rack and is good on gas. E39's make great commuters. Hey OP check out bimmerfest.com for all the E39 info you may need.
